    BWO Twitter: htjoshua @downingstreet what chance PM invites pupils 2write2 Mugabe on behalf of persecuted teachers who ran poll stations returning "wrong" results
  •  
    In the light of post election persecution of teachers who ran poll stations returning the "wrong" results in Zimbabwe's recent elections, I have just asked our Prime Minister if he is going to invite pupils worldwide to write to Robert Mugabe expressing concern for: * teachers in fear of their lives, * pupils who miss learning, and * exams that cannot be run even. It happens the form of the question was by way of Twitter:

    No mention here of the teachers persecuted merely for running the election stations that may return the same "wrong" result in a presidential runoff, nor of the pupils who will not sit exams because their teachers are in fear of their lives.

Call for teachers to stick up for teachers in Zimbabwe | Aylesbury LIFE - 0 views

  •  
    I would like to encourage educators to help the educators of Zimbabwe who are being persecuted merely because the election went the wrong way. That is why I wrote the blog entry I am bookmarking now.
  •  
    I offer to help campaign on behalf of: "Educators [and low ranking govt officers who] have become targets in Zimbabwe's postelection violence.... ." merely for helping to run an election that turned out the "wrong way". Apparently the so-called government wants to make sure we don't see the same so-called mistake again!!

Zimbabwe teachers say they are targets in violence, clergy call for international help ... - 0 views

    It turns out that teachers and low ranking civil servants (ie.key electoral workers numbering >1700) are a special target of post election violence in Zimbabwe -- Roman Catholic Justice and Peace Commission is also calling for international coordination of runoff election.

    Does anyone know how best we can all organise our colleagues to write to UN and President Mugabe whom we could encourage between them to put this awful matter right...?!

    Vicki, I am probably being a bit thick here, but I cannot find the standard tags, unless they are the ones that show up in the right hand column under related tags when you click on:

    http://groups.diigo.com/educators/bookmark/tag/bestpractices

    including the tag 'bestpractices' of course. Do I understand this right, please?

    Also, please confirm for a newbie like myself. The idea is to use these tags with any others as appropriate. These are just tags that were set up at the start of the group to make life easy, helful and fruitful for us all as we share, right?

    Sorry to be obtuse or confusing if that is how it looks, but I don't want to share too much until I know what is what.

    Thanks for setting up the group by the way. I was thinking today that educators can be a real power for good in the world.

    > I hope some of you will take a look at the tags-- I had to make them shorter than I use in delicious b/c of how they show up on the screen. Just testing this - we need to get these tags settled pretty quickly before they get into wide use.

Safer Children in a Byron World | Aylesbury LIFE - 0 views

  • "Safer Children in a Digital World", requested by UK PM
  • a sudden outbreak of common sense.
  • To give you a flavour I quote: "At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim." Oh, so we don't drain the swimming pool of water, then?!
  •  
    This is just a flier introducing report requested by UK PM and authored by child psychologist. The report itself is quite long -- I dare say I will blog again when I have read it.
  •  
    Just blogged this: a new UK perspective on child safety online more objective than most -- a sudden outbreak of common sense even -- let us hope it prevails
